change wasn't going to happen overnight. but what we have seen is the reopening of the embassy and although, we still have significant differences around human rights and individual liberties inside of cu, we felt that coming now would maximize our ability to prompt more change. >> reporter: but you often said when you visit countri around the world, they put a fresh paint up and what are you looking for proof that there's been progress. >> there's no doubt that the cuban government is still a one-party state that's exerting control and that's stifling dissent. >> reporter: the president argues that he's already seen cuban entrepreneurs blossom. american businesses say, if we don't lift this embargo, other countries are going to get in
